This link go to full versions of both games as well as the DOSBox needed to play on modern machines. I haven't used these specific downloads myself so let me know if there are issues with them.

Arena
Daggerfall



ADDENDUM: If you think the game runs remarkably slow, there is a fix. Hold down CTRL and then press F12 to a point where you think it performs well, three or four times should be enough. If you think it suddenly goes too fast then hold down CTRL and press F11 to slow it down again.

Thanks for the links

Well I installed Daggerfall, though Norton decided Daggerfall.EXE is a trojan or something.

Game still starts though, so I've no idea what actually happened there.

Fired it up again, seems to be working fine. Started as a Dunmer, went through the questionnaire to determine class, and ended up a Sorcerer. Got ganked by an imp.

Just a question, Callidus. What are your specs? As for me I have Windows 7 - 64 bit with a dual-core processor. Is that close to what you have?

Windows 8 (my old laptop kind of died so I'm pretty much stuck with it), Dual core processor, onboard graphics, so Morrowind's about the best that I can do in all likelihood.

Ran into a few slight sound glitches, and the lip syncing for the introduction video was almost comical, but apart from that, the game ran beautifully.

Then again considering it's age it really should.

I saw the intro video on the page and yeah, the lip sync is laughable laugh.gif But really, just a few sound glitches? Thatīs amazingly good Iīd say for a game that old on a puter that new!

I installed Daggerfall on my Windows 7 64-bit box, and it runs fine. However, I cannot attack. You are supposed to hold down the second mouse button and move your mouse to attack. But when I do, nothing happens. I just stand there with my weapon out, doing absolutely nothing.

It may be just a configure problem. Maybe you need to set the second button to something else in Windows in order for it to work in the game? Eh, probably not but itīs a thought tongue.gif

Callidus - Do your attacks work?

Just ran a quick check. They worked, but were a bit cumbersome. It seems it has to be a sharp, fast movement of the mouse to trigger the attack. It also seems to affected by distance to the edge of the screen, or maybe just the distance covered by the movement. Shorter movements didn't seem to work very well.

I just downloaded Daggerfall. Attacks worked as long as I held the right mouse button and waved the mouse around. Walking is probably the weirdest thing, using the mouse and stuff. Also, can you not walk backwards? I killed the rat at the beginning, but I couldn't see it while I fought it.

I gave it another go and did get the attacks to work with really quick movements. Sometimes at least. It seems to only happen whenever it feels like working.

I also got killed by the imp. It was not like there was anyway to harm it after all.

I think I must have run into a glitch earlier.

Rolled up a Dunmer character, a custom Sorcerer, who for some reason started out with three iron cuirasses, one of which had a different apearance to the other two, and a pair of ebony daggers, along with some other stuff.

Only three spells though, which reall bugged me.

Then the imp got him.

Some of the clothing is changeable. You can click on it in the inventory screen and select "use" and it will switch to a different configuration.

Some armor just comes in multiple (but fixed) config's. E.g Pauldrons may have neck protection or not, and armors may have gold highlights or not. Cuirasses may be just a breastplate, or longer. It makes getting a matched set harder, but the different styles are all the same rating.

An ebony dagger should get the imp without any problems.

Ah, so that's why it was different, thanks.

And the problem my I've had with the imp so far is getting to it. I don't think I've actually lived long enough to take a swing at it yet.
